Non-alcoholic drinks come in various guises, but they don’t have to be boring, nor should they compromise on flavour! These days, there’s an abundance of alcohol-free options available. And with the growing evidence around the health benefits of finding alternatives to alcohol-based beverages, our selection of non-alcoholic drinks can be very helpful for those looking to kick start their alcohol-free lifestyle or want to be part of the party without feeling the negative effects of alcohol. 

Here are our top picks for deliciously healthy, non-alcoholic wine alternatives. 

Light Me Up- Sparkling White Wine Alternative 

Looking for a sparkling to replace your alcoholic bubbly? Altina’s Light Me Up is a unique and sophisticated alternative. Refreshing and light, this sip is similar to a dry sparkling wine, without the headache.

The Light Me Up sparkling white wine alternative is inspired by native Australian flavours.  Take your palate on a journey starting off with Australian forest berry and tart apples, followed by the delicate taste of green tea and the nuttiness of native wattleseed, finishing off with a refreshing and balanced acidity that gently lingers.

We recommend serving Light Me Up in a flute glass, dressed up with dehydrated apple garnishes. The Light Me Up sparkling white wine is available for purchase in packs of 2 for $39.95, 6 for $110.00, and 12 for $179.95. 

Light Me Up non-alcoholic white wine captures the essence of natural ingredients, without relying on excess sugar, fruit juices, or artificial colours and flavours.

La Vie En Rose – The Perfect Rose Alternative 

The La Vie En Rose is a delicate and crisp rose style bubbly with notes of hibiscus and rose petals. The palate is balanced with vibrant citrus undertones to deliver a natural acidity and a fine creamy texture. The finish is dry and refreshing with lingering flavours of tart apple and roses. 

We recommend serving La Vie En Rose over ice and garnishing with dehydrated oranges. You can also purchase the La Vie En Rose in bundles of 2 for $39.95, 6 for $109.95, and 12 for $179.95. 

This gorgeous lightly sparkling non-alcoholic rose is perfectly refreshing.

These alcohol-free sparkling drinks not only taste good, but they look beautiful too. They won’t look out of place on a bar cart or a dining table, make for great gifts and are an appealing alternative drinking option at any party or event. Their herbal, botanical ingredients create a more nuanced drink and the lack of predominantly sweet or fruity flavours ensures that they offer a more mature taste, and not ones similar to soft drinks or juice.
